Cyprus beaches ranked 3rd in Europe for outstanding water quality

By in

A report from the EAA (European Environment Agency) found Cyprus and Malta to be in the top three destinations within Europe for highest quality of bathing waters in 2016. The valuation took samples of water from over 20,000 beaches (including both coastline and internal water masses) around Europe. Out of the 112 areas that were examined in the Republic of Cyprus alone, an impressive 99% were found to be of outstanding water and general bathing quality. Landlocked Luxembourg beat the two islands with having 11 bathing sites assessed, scoring 100%.
